Mid-Century Asheville | From the Archives

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 3.13.49 PMTake a look at this cool, hand drawing by architect Henry Gaines of the SIX Associates. I found this beauty scrolling through the NC Collection at the Pack Library. This drawing was rendered in 1947 as a concept for a home in Biltmore Forest. However, there is no address on it or confirmation it was ever built. Gaines design many homes in Biltmore Forest.

In Asheville there is little archives at the city level on the design history of homes. However, NC Collection is one of the few sources, along with UNCA, that retains some records. Recently, all of SIX Associates drawings were donated special-collections-comto the collection. As a CALL TO ACTION I know many homeowners with original drawings from their mid-century and architectural homes. Do your community a favor and drop them off at Pack Library to have scanned for the archives before they deteriorate or our lost in time. I recently dropped off some plans drawn by architect Bert King from a 1950’s home in the Grove Park neighborhood to be scanned. If you have them…share them. That’s our plea to you today. Cheers!

Lawrence J Traber Mid-Century Homes x 3

Horizon Hill

13 Horizon Hill in the Horizon Hill neighborhood was built in 1965 as the architect’s personal residence. The home is 4 Bedrooms and 2.5 Baths and is approximately 3067 square feet on two floors. The home has great lines with a floor plan that is well-balanced between being open, but with a defined sequence of flowing spaces and framed views. The exposed brick throughout gives the home nice texture and warmth. It reminds me of mid-century, midwestern buildings where I grew up in Columbus, Indiana such as the I. M. Pei designed Library I studied in grade school. The constructions were solid, square and well grounded giving you a safe feeling. Overall, the home speaks of modern architecture while retaining that nostalgic sense of home. Yes — this one tugs at my heart a little. Crowningway Comp

14 Crowningway Drive in the Sunset Mountain neighborhood was built in 1966. It is 3 Bedrooms and 3 Baths and is approximately 2736 sqft on one level. The split plan of this homes flows naturally from the dramatic entry & step down living space that anchors the center of the home. All rooms open to a clean, modern deck with those breathtaking Asheville views we all love about Sunset Mountain. I refer to Sunset Mountain as our Hollywood Hills [another place I used to live] and no doubt this home is Hollywood swank!Stuyvescent Comp

115 Stuyvesant Road in Biltmore Forest was built in 1977. The home is 4 Bedrooms and 4 Baths and is approximately 3304 sqft. The L shaped home is a sophisticated blend of clean lines juxtaposed by rustic stone walls and timbers. 543187-6The layout takes advantage of the rare sunny lot in the Forest adjacent to an open park. This home recently changed hands and I’m hoping the new owners love the kitchen cabinets as much as much as myself, Kelly and Carol Brady love them.

Cheers!
